Frequently Asked Questions

  • "My first university degree is from a country that is not German- or English-speaking. I have documentation from that country to prove my English skills / I have majored in English / I have taught English for several years. Do you still require an international standardized test such as IELTS or TOEFL?" - Answer: Yes.
  • "Can I learn German while studying in the program?" - Answer: The university does offer German courses that you could take on the side, but you need to meet the A1 CFR German requirement in order to be admitted in the first place.

If you have other questions about the application requirements, please contact the program coordinator.
